_The only thing better than your Bender is your Gir! & sloppy? Are we seeing the same Bender? Everyone I showed this too -even my sister who is very perfectionist- said they bow before you.

Wow, thanks for the support, everybody!   Smiley

Bender stands just over a foot tall, maybe about 14 inches or so?
He took about a month and a half to complete, but a lot of that was staring blankly at the parts I had, wondering how I would tackle the next step.

I somehow tangled myself into a semi tradition of giving my husband some sort of homemade cartoon character toy just about every year - felt was my original material of choice (gir is all handstitched felt parts, except for his head which is felt glued to a portion of bottle), but after learning crochet, it seemed like a good direction to try. 

I have to say, the photos are very kind to Bender and don't really show his uneven crocheted-ness and how his body warped.  However, I do have to say that after a good night's sleep without thoughts of 'omg, how am I going to pull this off', he does look better to me this morning. Wink

Mitsumame, even if Bender is slightly crookedly crocheted, and his body is warped...it suits him because, he's...well, Bender! Cheesy

Send that to adultsiwm.com (They show futurama). They always have like blurbs and pictures fans have sent them before and after all their shows. I bet they'd show this! It rocks so hard. Bite my shiny metal ass!
